Chapter 19. Events and Event Handling > Advanced Event Handling with DOM Level ...

19.2. Advanced Event Handling with DOM Level 2

The event-handling techniques we've seen so far in this chapter are part of the Level 0 DOM: the de facto standard API that is supported by every JavaScript-enabled browser. The DOM Level 2 standard defines an advanced event-handling API that is significantly different (and quite a bit more powerful) than the Level 0 API. The Level 2 standard does not incorporate the existing API into the standard DOM, but there is no danger of the Level 0 API being dropped. For basic event-handling tasks, you should feel free to continue to use the simple API.

The Level 2 DOM Events module is supported by Mozilla and Netscape 6, but is not supported by Internet Explorer 6.
